Brick Lane Market

Tower Hamlets | Market | Ref: 5230

Brick Lane as a film location is a microcosm of Londons shifting ethnic patterns. What used to be poor slums and an area riddled with crime for the Jack the Ripper murders, is now the funky, vibrant, trend setting heart of East London, leading the way in vintage goods and underground cool.

It is also naturally associated with London's Bangladeshi community and a great deal of filming takes place on the street, to capture the atmosphere of neon lights, the seemingly hundreds of curry houses, hidden alleyways and Asian supermarkets.

Many stars of the film world have trodden the pavements around Brick Lane, get in touch to be the next. NOTE: Brick Lane Market is only open and operational on Sundays.
